Every Monday, gardeners around the world share a vase of their best blooms with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden. It’s a most addictive meme!
My contribution for this week is a bouquet of red hunter tulips, with hellebore, heuchera ‘little cutie’ and malus royalty crab apple blossom. This same bunch is today’s bouquet at www.fromeblooms.com, where I’ve posted a new bouquet from the garden every weekday for the last few weeks.
I like the limited palette of scarlet, plum and chocolate, which makes a change from the yellow and blues of daffodils, primroses, bluebells and grape hyacinths which have dominated the garden in the last couple of weeks.
The bouquet is in a little ceramic jug with a bronze glaze. This was another bargain find from a Frome charity shop. I think I paid £1.25 for this little pot. Checking its bottom, I see it was made in Wales, but I can’t decipher the text above ‘WALES’ – any suggestions?
Do visit Cathy’s blog to see what’s been posted in a vase on Monday this week.

Oh, I love your restricted palette – good to see Royalty in it too, as I have just noticed that ours is in full flower too. Copied and zoomed into your photo of the base but couldn’t make it out either. Well done for daily vases – I am off to have a quick look now!
A gorgeous arrangement.
We do a good line in charity shops in Frome, don’t we? Well, shops in general really. I love your colour pallette. Very sophisticated and beautiful.
It’s a dramatic and effective color combination! I love the Heuchera used as a foliage accent. Sadly, Heuchera are almost as hard to grow here as tulips.
Very dramatic and regal! Loving the lines all the stems are making on the way to the blooms. The space allows a contrasting lightness to such bold colors. Beautifully arranged!
It certainly makes a very exciting change from the usual spring colours – the hellebore in particular almost begins to look like something much more exotic! I couldn’t decipher the engraving on the vase base either – but what a find!
